Sophie MARC, known as Olivier MARC until 2019, decided to set up Euro China Capital in 2004, with the objective to address one opportunity and one challenge: the quantum potential of the Chinese market, coupled with the utmost difficulties in maneuvering its specific aspects, notably the strategic, financial, legal and cultural ones.
At that time, she had been successful in Asia as a corporate CFO, in the US as a Duke MBA student and JPMorgan banker, and in Europe as an Insead student and Alstom VP Finance. Yet, she needed to gather a trustful and complementary team of colleagues and business partners to satisfy demanding clients with high stakes.
The development of Euro China Capital focused on tackling the increasing level of complexities met by our clients in China. We dealt with issues involving market-entry decisions, internal growth, partnership re-negotiation, competitors’ acquisitions, business intelligence or top-level institutional relationships. We emphasized the utmost quality of solutions provided to our clients, both in terms of depth and reliability of strategic analyses, creativity of proposals, and pragmatism for their implementation. One client after the other.
After having served over 100 clients, Euro China Capital began in 2017 to invest in booming companies in diversified sectors encompassing energy optimization systems, food & wine, and cosmetics & well-being. Since Covid lockdown, Euro China Capital stopped consulting services and has become a passive holding.
Sophie is passionate about corporate strategy and business transformation issues. After publishing a first book on negotiation issues in China, Sophie spent the Covid lockdown period writing a book on another strategic and powerful topic: how can DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) frame global corporate policies and unleash value for stakeholders?
During her leisure time, she eagerly sails offshore, learns oenology and trails on European mountains.
